My children are not yet in school, but I've noticed that at every bus stop I've seen, there are always hordes of moms waiting for the bus with the kids - this is in a nice area btw. People say now a days you can't be too careful, but when I was a kid in the 80's parents never stayed at the bus stop and crime was higher then! I just don't get it. Aren't people aware that crime has gone down? If you waited by yourself at the bus stop as a child than it is actually safer for your child to do that now!Answer Question

Crime hasn't gone down. But even if it has, why take the chance that your child might be one that makes up that low crime rate? KWIM?

Parent now days are paranoid about everything. The news tells them every little thing that goes on. Every little crime. Think of it. I grew up in the 60's and 70's. My parent let us run all over the neighbor hood. By ourselves. Now days parent do not even let their kids leave the house with our there eyes on them.
